More of a House Now

I decided to continue on with the start of my Neighborhood Round Robin tonight. I have much more of a house now... all that is left to do is add all the leaves on the trees, and to finish up the lawn that has a nice geometrical pattern done in pretty olive greens. Unfortunately, the roof also has a nice pattern in it, but you cannot see it. The WDW Molasses and WDW Chestnut are so incredibly similar that the pattern doesn't show... oh well.

The funeral was quite nice today. The paternal side of Mike's family is really quite fun, and it was nice to see his cousins who do not live locally. The weather was not good - very cold and rainy. I had to go back to work during the burial, but Mike was a pallbearer along with two of his cousins and the husband of another cousin. I am sorry I missed that. Grandpa is now resting peacefully next to his wife. She passed away well more than 20 years ago... Thank you to everyone for your condolences. Mike and I both really appreciate them. We get to enjoy some time still with my FIL for another day as well - he is a very easy houseguest!
